STERNS AFRICA (...) 40 Titles
Established in London in 1982 and in New York seven years later, Sterns African Record Centre is recognized internationally as, in the words of The New York Times, "one of the world's finest disseminators of African music." Sterns was the company that brought Salif Keita, Papa Wemba, Boubacar Traoré, Orchestra Baobab, Oumou Sangaré, Ismaël Lô and Sam Mangwana to international attention. Africando and Kékélé got their start with Sterns and continue to record for the Sterns Africa label, as do young artists such as Mayra Andrade, Ba Cissoko and Dawda Jobarteh. The Sterns Brasil label features contemporary Brazilian acts such as DJ Dolores and Nação Zumbi. In recent years, Sterns ARC has undertaken an ambitious project to honor the most important artists of modern African music with illustrated, annotated 2CD retrospectives. Among the honorees thus far: Youssou N'Dour's Étoile de Dakar, Franco & Le TPOK Jazz, The Rail Band, Bembeya Jazz and Tabu Ley Rochereau. Chris May of All About Jazz had this to say about the series: "From its inception, everything about Sterns' compilation program has been pitch-perfect. Curated by enthusiasts with deep knowledge of their subjects ... Sterns' compilations are exemplary. The care with which they are put together respects artists and listeners."
